Sealaska Corporation amends lands transfer bill

SITKA, ALASKA Southeast Alaska’s regional Native Corporation, Sealaska, is making major changes to a controversial lands transfer bill.
While the Sitka Tribe of Alaska has endorsed the bill, the legislation has met significant opposition from the wider Sitka community.
Hoping to earn broader support, Sealaska has withdrawn its claims to two land selections within the Sitka Community Use Area and is doing away with 15-mile access zones around Native Enterprise Sites.
